TLG Targeted Buying
Targeted Buying is an exclusive service of Tim Lamb Group that was created in response to demand from dealers and dealer groups wanting a more comprehensive approach to pursuing, and buying, dealerships.
The Targeted Buying process is carried out by our team of executives who target stores on your behalf, with complete anonymity if you choose, with your target criteria in mind. Our professionals will break down any dealer-to-dealer communication issues and approach each opportunity with the notion that everything is for sale.
If you are looking to better balance your portfolio of dealerships, or thinking about buying your first store, Tim Lamb Group can introduce you to opportunities before they are openly marketed. And, we can help you coordinate your purchase with banking, accounting, and legal industry professionals.

"“I recently had the opportunity to work with Gordie Gerbrandt during the purchase of Revolution Ford Slave Lake now Lakeside Ford. Throughout the process Gordie demonstrated a high level of professionalism and his expertise was critical in the success of this purchase. His assistance allowed a smooth transition to new ownership and his contributions were greatly appreciated. I would highly recommend Gordie to anyone requiring brokerage services.”
